Landscaping can entirely transform an outdoor space, holding the capability to turn it from a place of neglect to an exciting new area that adds another dimension to your property. Soft landscaping can spruce up greenery with flowers and trees, whilst hard landscaping can reinvent the essential functions of an outdoor area through remarkable functional and visual improvements. For a business, landscaping projects can be rewarding developments that improve the value of commercial properties and can make a workplace more enjoyable, functional, and visually pleasing. Not only that, but commercial landscaping can make a strong statement on what you want your business to represent, for internal employees and external clients alike. Read on for some commercial landscaping ideas that can transform your property, how this can streamline your business, and how RKC contractors can help in the process.
Driveway and Parking
First impressions matter for both you and your business, and having an efficient and visually appealing entrance and parking area for your commercial property is essential in creating an unforgettable impression for both employees and clients. By making the commercial space easy to access, tarmac-based groundworks
and excavations can streamline or entirely reinvent the efficiency with which your workplace functions. With help from a driveway or car park surfacing contractors, your commercial property can be more presentable, and will durably withstand all sorts of weather in years to come – commercial, hard landscaping being a worthwhile, lasting investment.
A patio area is a residential landscaping staple and can also be used in the commercial landscaping arena. A patio creates a pleasant outdoor space for staff to relax, unwind, and socialise, during lunch breaks and after work. Whilst this will be used more during the summer months, rather than the winter, it is a hard landscaping decision
which will benefit employees, and signifies that your office is a relaxed place which respects the leisure of those who work within it. Add some artful outdoor furniture, and this space can be used for work-related activities and social events. This hard landscaping project opens up possibilities for better workplace morale and, by virtue of that, higher employee effort and efficiency.
A soft landscaping touch can give your commercial property a tertiary flair which has a recognizable impact. Grass, trees, and plants can all add a natural, human touch to even the most industrial commercial property. Creative decisions can be made when adding these natural elements, and you could display your business’ logo or name with shrubbery, or even have eye-catching plants that make your commercial property look distinctive and original. However, be careful to choose plants and trees which complement, rather than contradict, the style of the building and the landscaping of the surrounding area.
